Using 11.10. I have Thunderbird set up and have been receiving new emails. But the envelope indicator in panel never turns blue.

I'm aware of this ask ubuntu: How to make Thunderbird notify of new email like Evolution?

But since Thunderbird is default, isn't the Envelope supposed to work out of the box? Could someone please advise what is wrong here?

Thunderbird needs to run and then it notifies you of new messages. It works out of the box.
